#NanoPoblano 2017 – Day 4

What is Nano Poblano?

 It is thirty posts in the month of November for National Blog Posting Month (or as we call it over in Cheer Peppers town – NanoPoblano!)

Today I’m sharing a quote – giving you food for thought about writing.

“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”

Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2017, 30 days of writing haiku and tanka, one a day on a theme.  For this CDHK Retreat Chevrefeuille have chosen the theme “Life is Beautiful”.

Bussokusekika Poetry

rough sea waves warning
heavy clouds approaching fast
houses built high up
always ready for high tides
not always right for the winds
even balance with nature

Bussokusekika is a rare form of Japanese poetry that consists of six lines written in a 5-7-5-7-7-7 mora pattern.

Mora Pattern is A unit of measure in quantitative verse; namely, the time taken up by a short syllable. A long syllable is equal to two morae.

  1. You always write such great poems, Elsie, and share beautiful photos. I wish that I was there, wherever that photo was taken. It is so beautiful and moody.

    I agree with the Stephen King quote and that is kind of where I’m at right now with the cake decorating idea that I have. I want to do it. I’ve set up the blog and YouTube channel. Now, to make myself get on with it. The thought of messing up for all to see is a bit scary, or at least unnerving, for me.

    Thank you for sharing your writing with us. I always enjoy reading it. Have a blessed week. 🙂
